North Shore -- All Sports
Speed and Conditioning Program

The GTD All-Sports Conditioning Program prepares athletes for the fall competitive season.

The sessions include, but are not limited to, circuits, core, plyometrics, and endurance training.

Each athlete receives a weekly guideline of suggested training to execute on off-site days. This guideline supplements the athlete’s onsite, progressive training. In addition, it assures that participants who miss onsite sessions maintain the program’s progressive discipline and overall conditioning.

This program is available for elementary school (age 8 and up), middle school, high school, collegiate, and open athletes.

Note: Athletes running xc in the fall should register for the GTD cross-country program.



Frequently Asked Questions -- and Answers

Question -- Can someone miss time in the program and still participate?
Answer -- Yes. The program has the flexibility and ability to implement conditioning to those who aren't able to make the entire 5 weeks onsite. When you expect to miss a session (or a week), please tell Coach Braz so that you receive a conditioning model to stay on track with the program's fitness progression.
Note -- For some athletes, if not many, captain's practices may be on Tuesday and Thursday. If this is the case, the captain's practices will take precedence over the GTD workout for those days.

Question -- Will the program continue to offer conditioning during the non-supervised days?
Answer -- Absolutely. The program will continue to offer a weekly aerobic strength outline for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturday. Sunday will be off.
For athletes who are serious and motivated, the GTD conditioning journey is 6 days a week!!!

Question -- Who do I pay? If I miss time, is the program pro-rated? Are refunds available?
Answer -- You may pay online at this link, with a check made out to GTD, or in cash. The fee is $150.
The program is not pro-rated. Participants who miss sessions or weeks receive conditioning models to stay on pace with the program.
Refunds are not available.


Objectives

This is a progressive development program. The goal is to enhance the athlete’s fitness and conditioning for a successful fall season.

Through these sessions, athletes will improve their speed, quickness, balance, agility, form, endurance, sport-specific technique, and overall conditioning.

Conditioning is attained by the appropriate level of progressive work at pace and over distance.

Athletes will learn conditioning strategies for future training and continued development throughout their athletic sessions.
